Wake up at 6am

What is your habit personality type?

  • I'm a Upholder, Rebel, somewhat Obliger. Gosh that's a mess of a mix.

Why did you sign up for this class?

  • I have always wanted to be a morning person. I keep trying and trying!

What has been your most consistent good habit in the past?

  • I finished Insanity after having twins. It was 60 days straight of working out hard. I also focused on giving everyone the benefit of the doubt my sophomore year of college. I have kept up that optimistic and forgiving mentality and find it natural to question what is going on in others' lives before becoming offended, hurt or annoyed.

Day 0:

I had my husband take the quiz, too. He's an upholder, questioner, and obliger. He actually got a zero in the rebel column. After I told him what I was doing he said "I actually can't think of any habits that you do on a daily basis." I'm a bit of a loose cannon. He's much more rigid in his routines. I think it's what makes us great as a couple, but I also pride myself on being able to improve myself when I notice something that needs improving. And waking up early is definitely something that makes the rest of my day amazing! I've always wanted to become a morning person. Here goes!

Day 1: I was so exhausted this morning, but I am so proud of myself for not going back to bed! I went to bed at 11:30, had to feed my daughter at 2:30 and then she started whining at 5:30, but went back to sleep. My alarm scared me to death at 6. I can't remember the last time I woke up to an alarm! The "small wins" mentality is huge for me. I tend to put myself in high pressure situations, just like Tiago said. Being kinder to myself makes this change a positive thing. I didn't do much with my morning hour, but I was showered and dressed before my kids woke up for the day! I call that a win!

Day 2: Oh day 2. I tried to go to bed earlier. I was tired, for sure! I still didn't get to sleep until about 11:30. And again, my daughter was up at 2:30 to eat. And again, my alarm scared me to death at 6. I asked my husband to help support me in making this change for myself and bless him, he turned on Michael Buble's Christmas CD for me in the living room to help me wake up. I love me some Michael. I didn't get up until 6:23. And I didn't shower before my kids woke up. I dinked around on my phone. BUT I didn't go back to bed!
